Though it took her 4+ years to complete, Corinna may just be the inspiration you need to be a Radiohead Bear this Halloween:

Thought it would be a great idea in 2003 to dress up as the Radiohead Bear for Halloween.
It also served a purpose to distract me from some really bad and sad times.
Alas, it took another 5 years to create the complete suit.
Due to school, work, and life, I worked on it piece by piece every odd year:2003,2005,2007.
The idea is to be as 2 dimentional as possible, hence the flatness of the head, just like the logo.

Now it's an outfit I wear on Radiohead shows and I still have plans for it.
Recreated the body in 2008 so I can wear it in warm and hot times.
It's always a work in progress with constant maintenance.

Good luck. More pictures of the costume and info at Instructables.

Hope to you see you out in one at one of the many NYC shows this Halloween.

In too much of a rush? Can't really sew? Need something for HalloweMeme TONIGHT (10/24). Last minute Radiohead-themed costume ideas pictured below...

Atoms for Peace @ ACL Fest 10/6/2013
ACL Festval Week 1, Day 3 - 10/6/2013

As you may have heard today's final day of Austin's ACL Fest's weekend 2 (10/13) was canceled due to flooding. Venues scrambled to book bands elsewhere and Atoms for Peace (who were to have headlined the Lady Bird stage tonight) landed at ACL Live / Moody Theatre. ACL will be streaming their performance live tonight at 10 PM CDT (11 PM Eastern). Watch it here.

Atoms for Peace played last Sunday (10/6) at weekend 1 of ACL and we already published a set of that and other W1D3 pics. A second set of Atoms for Peace pics from last weekend are in this post. You can check out pics of Weekend 2, Day 1 here and look for pics of the second day of ACL Weekend 2 soon. More of those Atoms for Peace pics below.

Thom Yorke

Thom Yorke is well known for his general dissatisfaction with music industry pay models at this point. Radiohead helped affect a sea change in the music industry by becoming early adopters of the pay-what-you-want online sales model. Since then, Yorke and Radiohead producer/Atoms For Peace collaborator Nigel Godrich have become outspoken critics of the pay models built into online streaming services, and of Spotify in particular.

Over the summer, Yorke and Godrich both pulled their solo and Atoms For Peace material from Spotify. As ever, Yorke was good for at least one stinging quip:

"New artists get paid fuck all with this model."
Yorke and Godrich also argued that Spotify is essentially set up to benefit its shareholders, rather than the artists whose music it offers to its users, and that the service colludes with major labels in an effort to wring more profits out of their classics-rich catalogues.

The announcement set off a lengthy debate that involved such oddities as Radiohead manager Brian Message piping up to dispute Yorke and Godrich's argument.

The debate petered out for a while, but picked up again last week when Yorke gave an interview to the Mexican culture site Sopitas, in which he again disputed Spotify's sustainability in response to a question about the future of mainstream music. Yorke offered a particularly memorable analogy at the end of his response. Here's the whole thing:

"I feel like the way people are listening to music is going through this big transition. I feel like as musicians we need to fight the Spotify thing. I feel that in some ways what's happening in the mainstream is the last gasp of the old industry. Once that does finally die, which it will, something else will happen. But it's all about how we change the way we listen to music, it's all about what happens next in terms of technology, in terms of how people talk to each other about music, and a lot of it could be really fucking bad. I don't subscribe to the whole thing that a lot of people do within the music industry that's 'well this is all we've got left. we'll just have to do this.' I just don't agree.

When we did the In Rainbows thing what was most exciting was the idea you could have a direct connection between you as a musician and your audience. You cut all of it out, it's just that and that. And then all these fuckers get in the way, like Spotify suddenly trying to become the gatekeepers to the whole process. We don't need you to do it. No artist needs you to do it. We can build the shit ourselves, so fuck off. But because they're using old music, because they're using the majors... the majors are all over it because they see a way of re-selling all their old stuff for free, make a fortune, and not die. That's why to me, Spotify the whole thing, is such a massive battle, because it's about the future of all music. It's about whether we believe there's a future in music, same with the film industry, same with books.

To me this isn't the mainstream, this is is like the last fart, the last desperate fart of a dying corpse. What happens next is the important part."

You can listen to the whole interview with Yorke below. Spotify turns five years old today; if you want to celebrate, you'll have to choose someone else's music to stream from its archives.

Atoms for Peace @ Barclays Center 9/27/2013
Atoms For Peace, James Holden @ Barclays Center - 9/27/2013
Atoms For Peace, James Holden @ Barclays Center - 9/27/2013

Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich's Atoms for Peace hit Barclays Center last night (9/27), as part of their tour, with all the crescendos and dramatic lighting effects you'd expect. The group -- which also includes Flea on bass, stalwart drummer Joey Waronker and Mauro Refosco on additional percussion -- played a good chunk of both Yorke's Eraser and this year's Atoms for Peace album, Amok, plus his UNKLE track, "Rabbit in the Headlights" and Radiohead b-side, "Paperbag Writer." If you went, what did you think of the show? Pictures of the show are in this post.

James Holden opened the show and he plays again tonight with Four Tet which, if you didn't hear has moved locations. No longer at Williamsburg's Riverfront Studios, the show's is now happening at 251 W 30th St in Manhattan, which is the space that once housed Rebel NYC. Doors are at 10 PM.

More pics from Barclays Center, plus the setlist, are below.

THOM YORKE plays Barclays Center (with Flea) tonight/Friday with James Holden who then opens for Thom's good friend Four Tet in Williamsburg on Saturday, two days before Thom Yorke's good friend Flying Lotus plays Le Poisson Rouge (where Thom Yorke last played NYC, though Thom will be in Virgina by then).

ARCADE FIRE play Saturday Night Live (with Tina Fey) and a show after SNL Saturday, and then maybe will be around for the premiere of the Spike Jonze movie they soundtracked (along with Karen O) as part of the New York Film Festival, or related events (though "Her" doesn't actually premiere until the end of the film fest which runs through October 13). Superchunk, led by Arcade Fire's Merge Record label boss Mac, are also conveniently in NYC for the weekend.

JACK WHITE is on the lineup of Sunday's "Inside Llewyn Davis" event at Town Hall, another NY Film Fest related event (that Patti Smith, Colin Meloy of The Decemberists, Conor Oberst, Joan Baez, Marcus Mumford, Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, Punch Brothers, and the Avett Brothers are also playing) (if you miss it, it's being recorded for Showtime).

BONUS: Guy Picciotto (Fugazi), Jim White (Dirty Three), T. Griffin (The Quavers), Efrim Manuel Menuck and Sophie Trudeau (Godspeed You! Black Emperor), Jessica Moss (Thee Silver Mt. Zion), and Mira Billotte (of White Magic) are all at BAM Saturday night, Massive Attack, Horace Andy and Cocteau Twins singer Liz Fraser are at Park Ave Armory for multiple days, John Zorn is having a birthday party with Mike Patton and more, Eugene Mirman is having a comedy festival, Jimmy Cliff is at Webster Hall, and Stevie Wonder, Kings of Leon, Elvis Costello and more are playing in Central Park Saturday.

The possibilities are endless.

Watch the Arcade Fire's SNL teaser video and a teaser for the post-SNL show, below (see if you can decode the clues in Win's shirt to discover the location of Thom, Win and Jack's secret meeting)...

Atoms for Peace

"It's something we've talked about doing for ages, and we finally got our shit together," explains Yorke. "We've basically just cut everything up into its constituent parts. We'll try to re-cut the tunes live, mixing in loads of other bits and pieces and collaging stuff together.

At the same time as manning the machinery, Yorke will be adding his own live vocals and guitar to the mix. "I sing - but I felt kind of weird about that to begin with, because it's quite this weird mixture," he says. "It's like fucking karaoke or something! But it's not, because it's all this other stuff as well, and I have my own machines, like a drum machine and a vocal looper. It's interesting - singing, trying to remember words and programming a drum machine at the same exact time. It's kind of tricky."

The performance will also feature dynamic visuals designed by Dutch artist Tarik Barri. "That's fucking bonkers," says Yorke. "It's not like anything else." - [Rolling Stone]

Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich debuted their new Atoms for Peace "singing DJ" configuration at Le Poisson Rouge last night (3/15), celebrating the release of new album Amok. Following sets from Arca and Holly Herndon, Atoms for Peace went on around 1AM and did 12 songs from the new Amok and Thom Yorke's Eraser with those "bonkers" projections. Once their official set ended, the night turned into a dance party with Yorke and Godrich spinning tunes like De La Soul's "A Rollerskating Jam Named 'Saturdays.'" Not bad for a school night.

More pics from Le Poisson Rouge, plus Atoms for Peace's setlist, are below.

Atoms for Peace

Thom Yorke's group Atoms for Peace, who have a DJ gig in NYC coming up, made a video for "Ingenue" off of their new album, Amok. It was directed by Garth Jennings, who did Radiohead's "Lotus Flower" -- plus a zillion other cool videos and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy -- and you can check it out below.

Atoms for Peace

As mentioned, Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich of Atoms for Peace took to the internets today to do a Reddit interview, which you can see HERE. When asked if they knew their album leaked, they said "Oh did it? How nice," and when asked a followup question about how they feel about it, they said, "Well.. unsurprised?" Those responses themselves are pretty "unsurprising," considering this is Thom Yorke, whose other band Radiohead has been using album leaks to their advantages for over a decade. (Thom also did a BBC interview today, which is archived HERE.)

Plus, we now know Atoms for Peace were about to let us hear it anyway, because they've just made the entire new album, AMOK, available at their website, http://amok.atomsforpeace.info. The stream comes along with a visualizer, and any site that links to AFP's site gets added to that visualizer (the site's currently down but will probably be back up later today). You can also listen to the album its entirety below...

Atoms for Peace

As you may be aware, Thom Yorke's Atoms for Peace project drops their debut album, Amok, next week (2/26) via XL. Maybe you've already heard it? You can ask Thom how he feels about leaks and file sharing -- as well as less controversial subjects (what toothpaste does he use?) -- when he participates in a reddit Ask Me Anything interview at 17:30 GMT (that's 12:30 EST).

At the same time, Yorke will be interviewed live on BBC 6Music during Steve Lemacq's show. You can tune in here.

Thom and Nigel Godrich will be DJing "with live vocals" at Le Poisson Rouge on March 14 which is, surprise, sold out.

Ultraista

Ultraista (the project of Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, Walt Mink/Beck drummer Joey Waronker, and singer Laura Bettinson) has announced some January dates with production wizard Prefuse 73. No word yet on an official tour announcement, but the announced shows include on in NYC happening on January 28 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (12/14) at noon. All known dates are listed below.

In other Radiohead-related news, Thom Yorke recently revealed the details for his upcoming Atoms for Peace album (titled Amok, due out February 25). NME has since reported that their track, "What The Eyeballs Did," which was the b-side to the "Default" single can be downloaded for free at the Atoms for Peace website if you "scroll all the way over to the right and click on the dial of the clock tower."

Thom Yorke at The Wooly - 9/7/12 (via non_equivalents)
Thom Yorke

Thom Yorke came to NYC over the weekend and DJed a Fashion Week party for Rag & Bone (whose co-designer Marcus Wainwright is a friend of Thom's) at The Wooly on Friday (9/7). A picture of Thom during his set at the Belvedere Vodka-sponsored party is above. Aziz Ansari was in attendance too.

Thom also, as discussed many times, did an Atoms for Peace DJ set for the final installment of this summer's Warm Up at MoMA PS1 with AFP bandmate and Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich. Atoms for Peace just announced that their new album will come out next year, and to open their set, Thom and Nigel performed three new tracks that will presumably end up on that album with Thom singing live. You can watch videos of two of those new songs, and listen to audio of the third below. After the short unexpected live performance, Thom returned to the boards for the remainder of the show and spun a variety of tunes (everything from Talking Heads to Azealia Banks).

Thom Yorke

The rest of the lineup at Warm Up was great too. Despite a crazy storm, the show went on, opening with a set by Justin Strauss. Then Maria Minerva, who also did a Fashion Week show, just released new album, Will Happiness Find Me (stream it), and who now lives in Brooklyn (after moving from Estonia to London), played a live set. You can catch her in NYC again at Glasslands on Friday (9/14) with Father Finger and Octo Octa (tickets).

Up next was Holy Other, finally making his NYC debut, after having to cancel shows last summer due to illness. The elusive producer, who in a recent interview with Stereogum said he was "going to feel naked" performing outdoors during the day, played material off his excellent recently released debut LP, Held, and 2011's With U EP as well. A video from his set is below. The MoMA PS1 show fell in the middle of his tour with Amon Tobin, which hits the NYC area on Thursday (9/13) at Wellmont Theatre (tickets) and Friday (9/14) at Hammerstein Ballroom (tickets).

Before Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich finally took the stage, we were graced with one more set, this time by Scottish producer Rustie, who played Webster Hall with Flosstradamus and Brenmar the night before (9/7). He dropped bass heavy tunes that got the crowd going pretty wild. A couple videos from his Webster Hall show are below (unfortunately, the sound cuts out about halfway through).

Check out all those videos below...

Atoms for Peace

Yesterday we mentioned that Thom Yorke's Atoms for Peace project (which also includes Nigel Godrich and Flea) dropped their new single, "Default," on iTunes and that the single for the track will be out on September 10 via XL. You can now listen to that song below. Thom also announced that he plans to release a full length album with the project in 2013. Here's what he said today:

You may have heard that I have a new project called Atoms for Peace.

The name comes from some shows of The Eraser that happened a couple of years ago with Mauro, Joey, Nigel and Flea.

We got a big buzz from them and discovered loads of energy from transforming the music from electronic to live, and so afterwards, we carried on for a few days in the studio and decided to make it a loose, on-going thing.
Immersed in the area between the two...electronic and live.

The first tune we'd like you to hear is Default
A 12" vinyl version will follow next month and an album will eventually follow that next year.
Thom

As mentioned, Atoms for Peace will DJ Warm Up at MoMA PS1 on Saturday (9/8) with Holy Other, Maria Minerva, Rustie, and Justin Strauss. Advance tickets for that show are sold out but a limited number will be available at the door starting at noon.

In related news, Radiohead performed at the Moody Theater in Austin this past March for an episode of Austin City Limits. Last night (9/6), it aired on a screen in Austin's Republic Square Park for the first installament of ACL in the Park. The performance will air on PBS stations for the 38th season of Austin City Limits on October 6. Other performances which will air this season include Bon Iver (10/13) and The Shins (10/27).

Flying Lotus at Pitchfork Festival - 7/1412
Flying Lotus

You may remember that during Flying Lotus' set at Brazil's Sonar Festival, he revealed that his new album, Until the Quiet Comes, will be out in "October or some shit," as seen in a YouTube video that has since been removed. That release date has since been finalized, and we now know that it will come out October 2 via Warp. Like 2010's Cosmogramma, the album will feature a guest spot from Thom Yorke, and others TBA. Additionally, we recently mentioned on BV Chicago that Warp recently reissued FlyLo's catalog on vinyl and it's also all currently streaming.

He'll be supporting that album with what is presumably going to be a tour. Nothing's been announced in full yet, but we do know that he'll be in NYC to headline Terminal 5 on October 7. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (7/20) at noon.

Flying Lotus was just in Chicago for Pitchfork Festival on Saturday (7/14), which we posted pics of HERE and HERE. While he was there, he also stopped by the Brainfeeder showcase, though just after midnight he tweeted, "Cops shut the party down. Sorry. Maybe see u at the adult swim party tomorrow." The Adult Swim party he was referring to was the Eric Andre Show, which is touring with different musical guests at each stop. Flying Lotus played the one in Chicago on Sunday (7/15) and the tour comes to NYC on Thursday (7/19) at Santos with Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire and Saturday (7/21) at Public Assembly with Wiki.

All currently known dates are listed below along with more pics from Pitchfork Festival.

Maria Minerva

London-via-Estonia psychedelic pop singer Maria Minerva is planning to release her new album, Will Happiness Find Me?, on August 1 September 4 via Not Not Fun. The album follows her excellent 2011 EP, Sacred & Profane Love, which came out on NNF sister label 100% Silk. The album was recorded in Lisbon, finished in London, and mastered in Berlin. She's also got a collaborative album with NNF/100% Silk label boss LA Vampires (aka Amanda Brown) called The Integration, which is due this October.

Maria will be touring New Zealand/Australia in August, and after that she'll be heading to the US for a tour here. That tour hasn't been announced in full yet, but we already know she'll play Warm Up at MoMA PS1 on September 8 with Thom Yorke/Atoms for Peace (DJ set), Holy Other, Rustie, and Justin Strauss. Tickets for that show are still available.

While she's in NYC, she'll return to Glasslands (where she made her US live debut back in April) for a show on September 14 at the Brooklyn venue. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Holy Other

Manchester producer Holy Other released one of the finest EPs of 2011 with the With U EP, and he just announced that he'll follow it with his debut full length this year, which is titled Held. The album's out August 28 via Tri Angle, who also released his EP. The first taste is a new track titled "Love Some1" which is rooted in the same type of Burialesque bass, snaps, and pitch shifted vocals that made his EP so great, and this track is no exception. Stream it below, along with the album's tracklist.

Holy Other was supposed to make his way over to the states last year but had to cancel due to illness and never ended up doing so. Now he's once again got plans to head over to our side of the Atlantic, and assuming all goes well, he'll make his US live debut at PS1's Warm Up on September 8. That one's the final show of the series and it's got an especially stacked lineup with Thom Yorke's Atmos for Peace (DJ), Rustie (who we've written about HERE), Maria Minerva (who we've written about HERE and HERE) and Justin Strauss. Tickets for Warm Up go on sale June 18.

Yauch

Entitled "Dot Connectors", this message was posted to Radiohead.com today:

I was very sad to hear the news of Adam Yauch's death yesterday.

We looked up to the Beastie Boys a lot when we were starting out and how they maintained artistic control making wicked records but still were on a major label, and the Tibetan Freedom Concerts they organized had a very big influence on me personally and the way Adam conducted himself and dealt with it all impressed me a lot. He was a mellow and v smart guy. May he rest in peace.

Atoms for Peace

"After the opening of the Stanley Donwood exhibition at Subliminal Projects Gallery an afterparty was scheduled at MOCA in LA with Gonjasuffi, Ana Caldaron, as well as Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich (Nigel: "We're Djing at Mike D's bash"). The two under the name Atoms For Peace played 5 new songs with Thom Yorke vocals. And it all points out to tracks from the highly anticipated Atoms For Peace album.

Atoms For Peace is live band of Thom Yorke, which includes Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich and Red Hot Chili Pepper bassist Flea. A new album was in the works, but till today there was no sign of new material." [At Easeweb]
